  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL...

    Central Hardin senior guard Jordan Daniel scored a career-high 33 points, but it wasn’t enough as the visiting Lady Bruins fell to 5th Region rival Hart County, 79-71 on Monday night.

    Senior forward Kristina Krupinski added 19 points, while senior guard Alysse Bishop had nine.

    Daniel’s previous career best was 31 points against 17th District rival John Hardin on Dec. 13.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL NOTEBOOK:...

    LOUISVILLE Terrence Jones is many things, but one thing the Kentucky freshman isn’t is consistent from the field.

    The 6-foot-8, 244-pound forward has shot better than 50 percent from the field in consecutive games just once. So even though he made 9-of-12 shots Tuesday against Coppin State, Jones was probably due to have a shooting clunker Friday in the Wildcats’ 78-63 win at rival Louisville.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Injuries...

    LOUISVILLE The Louisville Cardinals have one of the deepest teams in the Big East Conference, but injuries are starting to leave them short on bodies and with short bodies.

    After 6-foot-8 sophomore forward Rakeem Buckles suffered a spiral fracture Thursday, coach Rick Pitino went with a noticeably smaller lineup in Friday’s 78-63 loss to the visiting Kentucky Wildcats. The Cardinals started only one player taller than 6-4, while Kentucky coach John Calipari countered with a lineup featuring only one starter shorter than 6-4.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL OPINION: That...

    LOUISVILLE Sometimes it’s hard to trust the words coming out of Rick Pitino’s mouth.

    OK, OK, I’ll admit sometimes is probably the wrong word. Probably should have just deleted sometimes and started with it’s.

    However, it didn’t take Pitino long after he reached the podium Friday afternoon to speak the truth after his Cardinals were walloped by John Calipari’s Kentucky Wildcats, 78-63.

  • GIRLS' PREP BASKETBALL:...

    Freshman guard Raley Johnson hit 4-of-7 3-pointers en route to a team-high 16 points and eighth-grade forward Morgan Turner added 13 points and team highs in rebounds (seven) and assists as the visiting Meade County Lady Waves topped the Edmonson County Lady Cats, 62-57 in a battle of 3rd Region girls’ basketball rivals Friday.

    Senior forward Kristin Benton added 13 points, six rebounds, two assists, two steals for the Lady Waves (2-9).

  • OPINION: Predicting UK-U of L...

    I couldn’t count the number of times I’ve been asked the last week who will win today’s marquee matchup in the Bluegrass State. At work. Around town. At home over the Christmas holidays. The question was the same: Kentucky or Louisville.

    The answer isn’t so easy. Last year, it was cut and dry Kentucky was the better team. Two years ago, Louisville was although it took a deep Edgar Sosa 3-pointer to pull out a 74-71 victory.

    LaRue County junior guard Kyle Sheeran scored 22 points and the host Hawks erased a seven-point deficit to win the championship of the National Guard Holiday Classic with a 61-50 win over Barren County on Thursday.

    Senior forward Chase Reynolds added nine points, six rebounds and one block.
